Mini dryers are especially suitable for drying of adhesive products that dry in falling rate periods and tend to agglomerate. The product is pumped to a special extruder discharging directly into the path of high speed rotating dis integrator beaters. The dis integrator is continuously swept with hot air borne recycled material flowing through the dryer for a second pass. Most water is removed in and immediately above the dis integrator. The final drying takes place in ring shaped duct. This reduce the natural stickiness of the product and prevents material build up within the dryer.
